What is a Clean Sheet in Football?
In football, a clean sheet is when one football team doesn’t allow the opposite team score a goal in the match. Simply means the goalkeeper ‘keeping it clean’ by not letting the other team score any goals. This is mainly an achievement of the goalkeeper than any other player of the team.
For example, if Chelsea defeats Liverpool by 1-0, Chelsea kept a clean sheet. If the match is a draw, with 0-0, then both teams kept a clean sheet.
On Sportito Fantasy Sports, a clean sheet by a goalkeeper gives you 6 points, 4 points for the defender and 2 points for the midfielder. And this clean sheet value is assigned only if the players end the match without conceding goals to the opposite team. Additionally 0.05 points are assigned only to goalkeepers for every minute that they play with a Clean Sheet.
